BOONE, N.C. - With the new tiebreaking rules put into place two years ago, Appalachian State University wrestling was awarded the 23-22 victory over George Mason, Sunday afternoon at Varsity Gym.

In the two-year-old rule, the tie was broken using pre-determined critieria: the teams each had five victories and two falls. The next procedure is total match points, excluding bouts involving the falls.

Previously, George Mason was awarded the victory, counting all the points earned throughout the dual. The rule was incorrectly interpreted, as the points earned by each wrestler in a non-fall match should have been counted. Appalachian earned 50 points, compared to GMU's 46, giving the Mountaineers the extra point needed to clinch the win.

The Mountaineers return to action on Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Keystone Classic in Philadelphia, Pa. This will be the 12th straight season the Apps will head to the Classic hosted by Penn.
